The OnePlus Nord 3 vs IQOO Neo 7 Pro smartphones fall under the premium midrange category. But which one offers more value for money? Here are five things to pay attention to before deciding which one to get.
Firstly, the OnePlus Nord 3 is cheaper than the IQOO Neo 7 Pro. The OnePlus Nord 3 costs INR 33,900 for the base model of 8/128 GB. While the IQOO Neo 7 Pro is slightly more expensive at INR 34,999 for a similar storage model.
As for their display, both smartphones have a lot in common. They have a 120Hz refresh rate, Super AMOLED touchscreen, HDR10+ certification, and an under-display fingerprint scanner. However, the OnePlus Nord 3 has the brightest screen and possesses IP53 waterproof. That gave it an edge over the IQOO Neo 7 Pro.
But the performance favours IQOO Neo 7 Pro which is using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 5G chipset. The SD 8+ Gen 1 Chip has better thermal management than the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 found on the OnePlus Nord 3. More so, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is faster and has a more powerful GPU. So based on that, the IQOO Neo 7 Pro is our recommendation for gamers.
What They Have in Common
OnePlus Nord 3 vs IQOO Neo 7 Pro have similar camera setups but different sensors. Both smartphones have a 50MP OIS main cam + 8MP UW + 2MP macro lens and 16MP Selfie snapper. They can record video in 4K resolution.
Another similarity is the battery size. They have 5,000 mAh capacity. But because of how efficient the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is, the IQOO Neo 7 Pro seems to have a slightly longer battery life in most use cases.
Another similarity is the software. Both smartphones run on Android 13 out of the box and will get up to two years of software upgrades. There are stereo speakers too.
